What data do we collect, why and what do we do with it?

As part of our grant-making activities, Purey CustTrust CIO processes and uses data that applicants and grantees provide about their projects, organisations, beneficiaries and the applicants themselves.

We obtain and use such information, including a record of any correspondence between you and us to assess applications, monitor the use of funding, conduct valuations and publicise our grant-making and consider that under the EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) our legal basis for doing so is by way of our legitimate interest.

This includes transfer to and use by such individuals and organisations as we deem appropriate, including our trustees in the assessment of any grant application, but we won’t share your information with any other organisations for marketing, market research or commercial purposes, and we don’t pass on your details to other websites.

We will only keep your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil our legitimate interest and in any case, for a maximum period of seven years.During this time we shall take all reasonable steps to ensure that it is safe and secure and to safeguard and protect against unlawful access and accidental loss or damage. Thereafter we will take steps to ensure its safe and secure disposal.

We may also process and use personal data from other individuals (e.g. Trustees) to fulfil our legal obligations.

We may pass on your personal information if we have a legal obligation to do so, or if the requirement to submit a report following the award of a grant is not met.
